A pre-holiday shake of my head, today updated requirements for the priesthood.

I'm up and about earlier than expected this AM, so I fire up NPR and Carl Castle (with his usual assortment of marbles in his mouth) updates the Atlanta area (and the rest of this odd grouping of lifeforms) the updated requirements for joining the priesthood. If you have homosexual tendencies and have not acted on them for a documented three years, you could be a priest.

What the hell is this? Are they inferring that the evil that lurks in this branch of bastardized Christianity is due to homosexuality? Pedophilia is an incurable disease and homosexuality is not a disease, but a lifestyle and to some degree a choice. Talk about a blind's eye sweeping the real issue under the rug.

If this post does make it past the higher powers of AdultFriendFinder, I'll be amazed. If I have insulted anyone who is devoutly catholic, sorry and move on, you should be incensed as well.>>>itsallfun1957

I heard a Catholic priest talking about this on CNN (or maybe it was some other news channel I can't remember). They do consider homosexuality a disease. I agree that it has nothing to do with the child molesting priests. But I think some ignorant people believe that the two things are connected and maybe this will put them at ease. If they want to stop child molestation maybe they should give the seminary students some kind of psychological evaluation first. I also remember the priest talking about how this has been a much worse problem in North America than in other parts of the world. So it makes you wonder whether it is just more hidden in other parts of the world, or if its just not happening in other parts of the world.

Really, does any decision made by the Catholic Church (and contrary to common sense) really suprise anyone?
